100% the best statement of 17 pages. It's important to remember it is just a game. Yeah, it sucks when player A is using unlimited lives or player B has the sun in his eyes. We still manage to get some fun out of the game. Stay positive, my gaming friends.

Well said. I have to agree with you. I don't care to take sides on this one as im not in the beta and don't expect anything until im actually using it. Even then i take it with a grain of salt, because anything is subject to change at a moments notice.Quote from w3djyt
Full Disclosure: I am not in the beta. I do not post on the official forums outside of bug reports. I do not really subscribe to any one side of this argument, I just read and listened a lot after the explosion happened.
Dec 10, 2013The Diablo III community isn't the greatest. I'm not going to lie, some people make you want to drown a kitten. Tonight met a really reasonable person and discussed the wizard for a good hour with this fellow. Being able have a civil conversation with some random person with similar interests as you was absolutely amazing. There was no: "omg, you do 23 dps? wtf ur bad." It was a thrilling discussion about loot choices and the diversity of characters.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

It's true. Sometimes you will meet someone you can't reason with. I think anyone in this position should turn the other cheek and just let it slide. The more we give into trolls, the more we allow them to have a foothold in this game. I say -NO- to elitism and trolling in Diablo. Please help stop the cyber-bullies out there which destroy gaming communities. I understand, nobody wants to be a narc, but the more your report inappropriate behavior, the better we make this community.
Lets make this a community a family.

Don't be a tool. There is a blue post tracker. If there is news on diablo by blizzard its hear too.
Go Troll someplace else if you have nothing better to do. I hear WoW chat misses you go there.
There is more information on this site about diablo 3 then blizzard would or ever could do.

Dear Diablo III Development Team,
This is a message on behalf of the portion of the community that engages in the competitive aspects (such as Leaderboards and Conquests) of this game you created - the players who love the game to the point where they dedicate large portions of their free time to playing it; who want to have at least something to show for this dedication; who want to have their names up there on the Leaderboards; and who want to see rewards for the countless hours of gameplay they spend on Diablo III.
You’re making this incredibly difficult for us.
We all know that beating the highest possible Greater Rift tiers requires a large number of attempts in addition to the time investment that is needed to get the appropriate gear. This involves a lot of grinding, be it for Keystones, crafting materials, Infernal Machines, or Ancient Legendaries. Such is the nature of the game and that is not the issue. The actual problem lies in the vast amount of people who try to get around doing this dirty work - the ones that use bots; the ones that can log into the game to hundreds of Greater Rift Keystones, Legendary crafting materials, or Infernal Machines every day, without having lifted a finger for any of those. It should be obvious that this provides these players with a huge advantage over those of us that choose not to bot, but put at least the same amount of effort into the game and advancement of our characters. This feeling is extremely disheartening. We all know that it is incredibly hard to beat the botters and even impossible if they were to step up their gameplay to a higher level of efficiency. They can get a huge lead on you every single night. This knowledge reduces the incentive and desire to participate in the Leaderboard competition until eventually the Diablo III competition becomes a farce altogether. Thus, those of us that love the game and have been dedicated players since the start become increasingly frustrated with it until we simply give up on the entire competition, or create our own, virtual “bot-free” competition by ignoring all known botters.
To prevent that, your very own End User License Agreement, which we all agreed to, states that players may not use bots such as these, even giving “the automated control of a character in a Game” as an example for such a prohibited program (Section 1.C.ii.2. of Battle.net® End User License Agreement, http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/legal/eula.html). Enforcing this agreement is your duty and yours alone. If you don’t, it will only go to show that you don’t care. It has been months since the last major action taken against botters and, consequently, Season 3 was dominated by them. Our friends lists contain more and more people who are online for more than 20 hours a day, despite them having to go to work or school. Even if detecting the actual bots running on people's machines or identifying them by their in-game behavior was impossible, their log-in times should be more than enough to warrant additional investigation. Nobody can play for 23 hours every single day.
Even if that were infeasible, at least let us report botters so that you may investigate their behavior. It has come to a point where it is quite obvious that certain high profile streamers are botting off-stream and some are even admitting so themselves in public chat rooms. These players are viewed as examples by the community, so what kind of message does that send? To us, it sends the message that not only is it apparently legal to bot, but that the game even requires it to be competitive. That is undoubtedly not how you want Diablo III to be seen, especially with how far we’ve come since the issues of the original release.
Of course, we would prefer any action against botters to happen immediately upon them being discovered. However, we are aware that this is likely infeasible. Thus, we would propose any action against botters to take place approximately two weeks before the end of a Season, coinciding with the “Season Ending” announcement, as to not give botters the time to catch up to the legitimate and fair players again. The latter would then still be able to fight for the clean Leaderboards, as they would if botters didn’t exist.
Still, with no action having been taken for so long, sending out a message to the entire community sooner rather than later would be a good idea.
Please, if you have the same love for the game that we do, do something about the botters. It cannot continue like this. We cannot continue like this.

Thanks for sharing. I get the issue, but it's not really relevant. We know top leaderboard spots are generally:
Thus, super high paragon/stats
THUD or some other exploit other people at the top are using (otherwise not at the top)
Been around enough high level players to verify the above. Casual players will never have a chance at high leaderboard placement, sorry, that's just not what the system is designed for.
I agree paragon is a bit lackluster (it's just stats, not customization), but the 1% of 1% of 1% who reach P2000+, well, they deserve it. It's a grind game after all and they're grinding it out their entire lives, for whatever reason appeals to them.
I'll be lucky to hit P800 combined after this season, and I'm perfectly ok with that.

I came back after basically a ~4-week break, this is the result after a mere 14 tries: An incredibly disgusting rift featuring Cave of the Betrayer, Unburieds, one single elite pack, and obviously Stonesinger (Casualbuff multiplied by Streamerbuff).
Over the last couple of weeks I've been doing trials here and there and somehow managed to farm up 246 tier 64 keys and about 100 tier 65 keys. Should have done it the other way around I didn't really expect to clear tier 64, at least not that quickly, but somehow I did. Unburied + Goatmen rifts are about 1 in 40, so with those keys I could have expected to get 5-7 rifts with this combination, and sometimes they turn out to be really bad density or elite wise. The next goal is obviously going to be tier 65, but I will probably not push beyond, with my (comparably) lowish paragon and dps in general my hopes are very low for anything after that.
Enjoy the run!

Most recently I'm talking about giving non-season players access too all the new legendaries. As a gamer who played alot of D2 and LOD. I can say that it's not enough for most to just race for paragon levels or greater rifts.
Sure I could play non-season then. But that doesn't appeal to me.
I hear this a lot from season players. Yet, I don't get it. Why does non-season not appeal to you, but at the same time the season-only rewards are not enough for you?
So you don't think the rewards make it worthwhile to play season, but you also don't want to play non-season. Help me out - why do you not like non-season, why do you want to play season?
Season is a game mode that asks players to start over from scratch. Hit the reset button. I hate that. I absolutely despise being forced to start over again and throw away all my progress just because some artificial reset button was pressed. What's the point? And no, it's *not* fun to start over again, I was forced to do this in LoD with all the ladder-only runewords that, for a casual player, made non-ladder worthless.
If you want to start over, play season. If you don't, play non-season. But just because you personally prefer a certain game mode that does not mean that Blizzard needs to screw all those of us over that don't share your opinion and put all the nice and fancy stuff into your game mode. It's like a HC player asking for HC-only items. I never see HC player asking for this, yet they stay in their game mode. What makes season players so unique that they have to have access to all the items and take it away from non-season players?
No, no, no, no, no. I could not disagree more with this thread. Not everyone thinks like you. Diablo is still based on the ARPG genre, and for me an artificial restart has no place here. I payed the same amount of money for the game as you did, so I don't see why you should get significantly more content than me.

I'm sure there's always room for personal skill improvement in surviving, which would raise you a few more levels up. But after a certain level, the general behavior is stacking many high level keys in group play and then keep trying until a doable combination of terrain/population/mob type/afflix/boss/pylons/etc. is obtained , a.k.a. fishing..
Feb 13, 2014I got some good feedback for this video, so I thought I'd share. This is just a little spontaneous project I wanted to do yesterday.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
